Phone Meal

My kids still keep in touch with their friends from Cincinnati.  In fact, they spend hours on the speakerphone, talking with them and playing online video games.  Yesterday, they were on the phone.  I heard the two boys on the other end giggling and carrying on, just as my kids were.  It sounded like my house was full of kids.

I sat down at the kitchen table and listened in on their conversation. 

"Dude," my son said to one of the boys.  "My mom can hear you.  She's right here."

"Oh, hi Mrs. Ellis.  I'm hungry," the boy said.  "Do you have something to eat?"

"Sure.  I'll send you a slice of pizza and some chocolate chip cookies through the phone lines," I answered.

Can't let a thousand miles stand in the way of a hungry boy!

  3. We need teleportation. I wonder if rearrangement of particles affects taste?

    1. Good question. I also wonder if teleportation could result in few calories. That could be a good thing!

    1. We have unlimited long distance calling. Otherwise, yes, our phone bill would be atrocious!

    1. Absolutely! I think inanimate object like food would be kind of good to experiment with.

  7. That's cure. You can't keep a hungry boy waiting. Soon you'll need to hire a waitress to keep up with your blossoming new business!

    1. It'll be interesting if something like that happens in fifty years. I wonder if I'll be around to see it.

  11. LOL! While you're at it, have any spare cheese? (I think the interwebz work just as well as phone lines.) ;)
